Living the sweet life in Alberta Ferretti for Macy’s

Mariacarla Boscono looks perfectly at home as the 50s Italianate bombshell brunette in the spring 2012 campaign for Alberta Ferretti’s capsule collection for Macy’s. To fit with the colourful holiday mood of the pieces, Ellen Von Unwerth ploughed unabashedly into the book of headscarves-and-vespa-riding cliches: but does it matter? Some things are timeless, and wanting to look glamorous while living la dolce vita is one of them.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
